Remember when we went to a press conference at Double Tree by Hilton where Ashley Colburn, TV host and two-time Emmy Award winner announced her plan of filming web video guides for Croatia?

Well, a month has passed and it seems that Ashley has been very busy - her first video came out 10 days ago and it shows some secret places around Zagreb County you can visit to get to know the true charm of this part of Croatia.

"One of my favourite things about Croatia is that tradition still lives on. Here in Zagreb County, I'm going to show you small villages right outside the capital city that still hold on to this cultural heritage," Ashley says in the video.

Some of the places she takes viewers to are the wine roads of Jastrebarsko, the beautiful wooden chapel of Saint Barbara at Velika Gorica, and an old mill at Sveta Jana - all half an hour away from Zagreb, and great stops if you're travelling to Plitvice Lakes or the seaside. Watch the video and get inspired for your weekend trip - you can even do it tomorrow.

Other vehicles (such as cars or trucks) should look carefully for bicyclists before turning left or right, merging into bicycle lanes and opening doors next to moving traffic. Check your mirrors and be aware of blind spots before turning. While at a stop sign or red light, make a complete stop in order to let bikers pass, and check for unseen riders. Respect the right of way of bicyclists because they are entitled to share the road with you. Cyclists are not immune to traffic violations: pay attention to red lights and practice arm signaling!
